New Additions to Other Regions

Shadowhunters (Season 3B) Netflix Original

New episodes weekly

The final half of the third season of Shadowhunters is now available to subscribers outside of the United States. As each episode airs in the United States, subscribers will have access the very next day.

Fans have expressed their dismay that the final half of Shadowhunters season 3 is the final episodes of the entire show. Netflix was involved heavily in the cancelation of the show even though production was handled by American network Freeform. Netflix has the international license to stream Shadowhunters but turned away streaming any further seasons after 3B likely due to lack of viewership. The show was reliant on Netflix’s massive platform as viewership in the US dropped dramatically.


Dirty John: The Dirty Truth (2019)

Genre: Documentary

Alongside the release of Bravo’s Dirty John television series, a documentary was also released. The documentary investigates into the real-life John Meehan with events as told by those affected by his deception and lies. Dirty John is a Netflix Original for regions outside of the US but the documentary was not released as an Original.
